BETA PHOTO: Puzzlement

Description 

That puzzling size that is a bit wide for off-width, but too narrow to chimney.

As is typical for our quartzite, you might use some off-width holds (arm bars, heel-and-toes), but you don't really have to make any off-width moves - there is always an edge someplace, if you can figure out how to use it!

Location 

The offwidth/squeeze chimney at the right hand end (south end) of the formation.

Protection 

A couple of #6s, or Big-Bros.

Led this with gear to 2 inches ... barely adequate. This would be a comfortable lead if I could remember to bring the big gear next time.
